. public comment. >> good afternoon, commissioners, peter cowan. it's overwhelming public interest and it's an incredibly important topic the inclusionly housing program. i wanted to support the mayor's office of housing and the work they have done to update the procedures manual. since they needed to hear from somebody there are stakeholders out there that they think doing good work. our organization has a primary focus on low and very-low affordable housing, but we have been an advocate and part of the design of the inclusionary program all along. it's an incredibly important part of how we have housing for all, so to speak. the city's bmr program is functionally only city program for moderate income or some call middle-income permanently affordable housing stock. that is it and we're still waiting for information that shows us that the market is producing anything. in that income category it's above where our publicly subsidized affordable housing can hit. this is the program that frankly produces housing for the middle-class, who are not able to reach the market. it's impressive over

named mo cowan. that means, hurrah, as you see here, that the u.s. senate will now have more black members than ever in its history, which is great news, right? and here is the rest of the headline. the new record number of black members in the united states senate is two. a total of two out of 100. that's the record. we've hit the record. it is a remarkably low number to be a record. still, interestingly, this appointment to the u.s. senate today is actually the second one that governor deval patrick of massachusetts has made as massachusetts governor. when senator ted kennedy died in office, the governor made a similar choice for the appointment to that seat when he chose, also like mo cowan, a trusted former staffer who had no designs on running for the seat himself. and if you think about that, it's actually a pretty respectful way to handle the profoundly anti-democratic process of one person just getting to designate a person to be a u.s. senator because there is a vacancy. we don't generally do that for the house, right? but we do that for the senate, which is a kind of gros
